I hope that as this entry posts it is a beautiful,sunny day in San Diego and that this winter is but a distant memory. This was,by far, the worst winter I can remember (including the 30" snowfall in Jan. 1996).Two major winter storms less than one week apart. The first dumped 23.5 " and the second dumped another 18".Personaaly I don't think that there is anything pretty about the snow. Perhaps if I had a different job that did not necessitate 4 sleeps in the Nursing Home I would feel differently.
Though the city did a stellar job with street cleaning, major storms in the city neighborhoods are a nightmare. There is nowhere to put that much snow! Getting to & from your car is sort of like mountain climbing - that is if you were lucky enough to find a place to park.

This is my adorable neighbor who helped his parents shovel a walkway after the 2nd storm. Note the amount of snow you have to get over to get into the street/your car.
DH had many days off from school because of this storm. He was nice enough to shovel a path from our front steps to the street so that I would not have to climb over snowbanks early in the morning :)! Note the two snow covered cars which remained in front of MY HOUSE for 3 weeks!
Well, I am sure glad to be in San Diego. Some day I will laugh about the Winter of 2010! But not yet.
